Back In Business

Bless her heart, La Rai has up until recently opted to keep professional commitments at a minimum in order to spend time with baby Aaradhana Aaradhya (never did hear an official Baby B name announcement). I hope the time together has been fulfilling to both mamma and bebe. As of two days ago, it looks like La Rai is ready to make a return to her movie star obligations. With her little one in tow, La Rai jetted off to the Dubai World Cup as part of her longstanding relationship with Longines. Although her appearance in a traditional Sabya suit marks a departure for a racing event (no sharp dresses or wild toppers here), I do completely sympathize. A few months post-bebe, and let's be honest, this is exactly what most new mommies would relish. Fashion and comfort with the added bonus of camoflauge. Not saying La Rai needs it, but who can blame her if she does!

I heard the baby's name is aaradhya but until the parents don't confirm we can call her anything :) she definitely looks so pretty. Love her confidence and the color suits her well!

OMG, Apple. You are right - I think I got the "Aar-" part and then just invented the rest. Ooops!

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.
